2015 REVIEW OF LUXURY MINIBUS & COACH HIRE

Another extremely busy and successful year it has been for us at Nova Bussing. 2015 had some very big events taking place which required luxury transport.

The year started off with us in talks with the Labour party about their transport requirements for the two coach election campaign tour.  It was a very busy March & April with a brand new coach turning up for this job.Once the election tour was finished it was straight on to slightly different tour with SClub7 which took us to the end of May.

The summer months saw the standard scenario in the coach industry of excess amounts of luxury work which far exceeds the number of luxury minibuses/coaches available.

This year we have noticed that there are a lot more requirements for 9 to 11 passenger full luxury minibuses. The repeated comment coming back from our customers is that they do not want to be using a 16/19 seater and actually want a 9/11 seater with larger seats. With this in mind our VIP 11 seater range is proving very popular and we are now looking at creating a 9 seater VIP range.

July saw us undertaking another big branding project which required four luxury coaches wrapped for The Open in St Andrews. There was a very tight turn around for these coaches to get them wrapped in one weekend and up to Edinburgh.

During the summer months we undertook a large variety of garden tours, with a lot of repeat customers from 2014.  The majority of our overseas customers this year were from Austria, France and Switzerland.

We undertook three very large weddings this year with one wedding requiring 17 Luxury Mercedes Benz minibuses all required to be less than 4 years old. We are lucky to have a number of companies that work with us when we have excess luxury work.

The Rugby World Cup was the major event for 2015 with a phenomenal amount of VIP business in London for the matches. We attended nearly every match in London and also the Cardiff fixtures proved very popular. Due to the shortage of luxury minibuses there was a big increase in rates being paid for new VIP minibuses. For us the Rugby World Cup turned out to be one of the most profitable events in recent years.

The horse racing meets, Cheltenham Festival in March and Royal Ascot in June were also very popular as usual. We already have a lot of bookings for the 2016 race meetings and expect these two to be extremely popular again.

To summarise, this year has been a great year for the coach industry with a lot more high quality work than was expected. 2016 is already looking like being a strong year with more quotes out than at this time last year.

2014 Review of Luxury Minibus & Coach Hire

What a busy and successful year it has been for us at Nova Bussing, with 2014 having supplied us with bookings across the seasons. We’ve provided luxury minibus and coach hire throughout the UK this year, from the coast of East Sussex all the way to the peaks of Scotland, it has certainly been a fulfilled year.

Attending some of the most prestigious events each year, this year has been no exception. Sending our top of the range luxury vehicles to VIP’s, senior management of large corporate businesses and other executive clientèle, our destinations have included Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

Not only have we been transporting clients from within the UK, but this year we have seen a sizeable increase in the number of overseas visitors travelling to England to view and purchase in the expanding property market in London. Among these visitors, we have also had the pleasure of working with large international corporate agencies, assisting them with large plan sight visits and transporting their clients to and from building development locations.

During the summer months of 2014 we undertook a large variety of garden tours, providing for big and small groups of tourists from across Europe and surrounding continents. Enthusiasts from locations such as France, Austria, Germany, Belgium and Australia (to name a few!), all chose our company to help make their trips special. With high reviews of our luxury minibuses and coaches being reported back after each trip, we have positive expectations that next year’s garden tours will be just as successful.

We also had the great pleasure of providing luxury vehicles for the very prestigious Cheltenham Festival in March and Royal Ascot in June. We have had countless enquires and bookings for these events this year, sending out many of our fleet for business executives, VIP clients, as well as private clientèle. These events are among some of our most requested during this time of year. We are definitely looking forward to these events in 2015 as it looks like it will be another busy time for the industry, with bookings already being considered we are already taking enquiries and bookings for Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot. Be sure to have a look on our website at our luxury minibuses and coaches, and remember to book early!

We have high expectations for the 2015 Rugby World Cup as well. In previous years we have supplied luxury vehicles for seasonal rugby tournaments and have great experience to offer for next year’s World Cup events. Whether that is for a particular match, management meetings, sponsor and advertisement events, or for private parties, we have the luxury minibuses and coaches to fulfil your requirements.

To summarise, this year has been an eventful time with many opportunities that have arisen and a busy year overall. We have worked with many highly respected clients and will continue to provide the best service we can, bringing friendly customer service and quality vehicles. On a final note, we have already started to look further afield, with our company already taking a fully paid booking for 2016. It just goes to show, that if you know you want the right vehicle you should book in advance!
